Is the worth measured in terms of the prizes. Remove the gifts, then lets see if it still seems a worthy topic to write?:)

In that case, where would the shampoo contests stand? Surprised

In fact, this is one contest whose topic looks sensible after a series of shampoo based contests.

yes off-course we (excluding those who don't agree) can pocket any poop and vomit any poison if there's assured pendrive/t-shirt/200-rs-voucher.... it's so worthy can't you see Mr..... Surprised

Thankfully I have stopped contests - For this is a topic I have passionate views on which unfortunately are against this topic, which Apollo folks may not at all appreciate.

what all they need is a backlink from you Wink

Ranjith

We will make the link no follow. They haven't specified that it should be a do follow link! Wink

Anunoy Samanta

then they'll strike off your name without letting you know... they have also not mentioned their selection process will be totally 'fair' Wink

@Anunoy You should be a lawyer! Wink

Almost same feelings here, TF. However I am not too convinced on the topic.

 

Apollo should have first organized a session on the same, educating how they r changing and incubating modern technology in their field, their procedures etc.

@Ranjith: I wish men could really turn naughty at 40s Laughing... or 60s... or anytime...

Anunoy Samanta

@Ekta: Does it require you to write all recent developments in medical field only?... it has ben told how modern healthcare is touching our lives... i.e. whatever a common man (us) is experiencing/encountering.... So what for a session? And once you attend a workshop you'll write all those high-phi stuffs which they'll ilude you with and your aam-admi's outlook will get subdued Smile

@ So, you want to become a naughty person? ... But, you already are a very naughty person! Tongue out

By the way, I am not naughty. I am a very serious person! YellTongue out

My seriousness is dormant due to the lack of a suitable smiley in this forum Undecided

Actually....I was wondering if any view on Medical Science Not Touching Lives but Touching more of our Bank Balance would be considered a legitimate entry...

Even though I have a lot of criticism against the modern day medicine system, I would like to participate in this contest and give a balanced perspective - Both pros and cons. In the process of researching for this blog post, I hope to understand modern medicine and alternative forms of medicine further. Irrespective of the prizes, I think this is a good topic to write about.

well thought... Wink

Health care is needed by all in one way or the other at some point of time in the life time. Any nation which can provide UNIVERSAL FREE HEALTH CARE FOR ALL  can really be called a developed country or the most socially sensitive to the needs of the citizens. Now a days providing health care is considered as business rather than a SERVICE. Hope the private,public partnership will provide service for all people.

Can we write about Alexander Fleming and the discovery of Pencillin?

Anunoy Samanta
from Bardhaman
5 years ago

it'll be more accepted by Apollo if you write about pricey Augmentin Wink

Ranjith
from hyderabad
5 years ago

I don't why but I smiled after reading your question. Smile

Seeing the word Penicillin, I am reminded of my school days. We had to learn the names of two antibiotics ( I don't remember if they teacher said it or I have assumed it ) Penicillin was the easiest one and I had a difficult time choosing the other one . Finally went with Streptomycin. I just wonder how complicated things of the past have become so simple today!

If I win the headphones, will I be allowed to exchange it for the voucher? Laughing

Anunoy Samanta

I don't even know how many ear/head phones are hidden in different corners of my house... so I also don't want headphone Money mouth

Ranjith
from hyderabad
5 years ago

I don't have as many headphones as you have Wink

The reason why I don't want them ( assuming I win one of them) is that I never use headphones.

think big... think Lumia... (now keep guessing how much I've been paid by Nokia to advertuise in public forums) Wink

wow, the result announcements are quite late, to be honest... why do they need that much time ? I don't think they'd be getting tonnes of entries for this.

You never know...they may up the ante and some bloggers would like to give it try. Besides, life is so uncertain with medicals and hospitals being so certain part of life...I am sure people will bring forth their experience. Sealed

Anunoy Samanta

Being a freelance writer, the first thing I looked for was the word limit, which hasn't been specified. Given the long window they've kept open for submissions, I'll take it easy but would surely participate. I hope it doesn't go the way of the previous Microsoft office contest, in which my laziness got the better of me Tongue out

Nandini Deka

i dont think theres word limit....

One suggestion for them. They can give i-pads to winners and free heart check up for all heart broken losers.

Visiting a doctor is the thing I fear the most! Surprised 

Nandini Deka

@Ranjith and Nandini - Incentive to try harder to win.

Anunoy - Much needed blessing in current times. You fall sick, modern healthcare will suck you dry and leave you penniless.

When i imagined blogging. It was to talk about something that i wanted.

Now suddenly, I am writing about Microsoft 365, HP Connected Music and may be also this healthcare thing.

Selling our souls for headphones, T-shirts and ipads? 

I would have hoped it would at least be something bigger, like a car, a world trip or some such.

Heh?

Nandini Deka

its not compulsory to write any of those if you dont want, but its fun

Ranjith

The role of a doctor is to save the lives of people. ( This is what I have studied in my school ) Now, does that mean that he shouldn't charge money for his services?

The same with bloggers. And, it is upto an individual blogger to decide whether he/she wants to be rewarded with i pads or not! :)

Anunoy Samanta

Madhu, if you think of the broader aspect, these contests are unfolding your versatility as a writer Smile

Finally something where both the sexes have equal chances..nice topic too..so here i go for it..:)

Just a quick question - What if we start on the expected theme of - "Modern Health Care touching Lives" and gradually , yet unintentionally deviate to the theme - "Modern Health Care touching our Bank Balances under the Pretensions of Touching Lives" .... Would the entry still be considered Legitimate ?

Anunoy Samanta

everything is situational, so it's always prudent to leap after analysing the situation Wink
